We've long since recognized the need for education and support for our youth and particularly for young women, in math and science, engineering and technology. The women we interview are bright guiding lights for the future of our youth, generously sharing their experiences - challenges and all. They are inspiring, often humorous and motivating. This series is a real jewel and a valuable set of tools for the future of young women and everyone who has the good fortune to listen.
Lucy Sanders, the CEO for the National Center for Women and Information Technology or NCWIT along with Lee Kennedy, Founder, Bolder Search and board member for the National Center for Women and Information Technology or NCWIT along with Larry Nelson, Director of w3w3® Media Network interviewed Diane Greene, founder of VMware. VMware introduced something really innovative which was a virtualization layer between hardware and software that allowed different operating systems to run on the same machine. When the company went public in 2007, it was Silicon Valley's biggest IPO since Google. We asked how she came to be an entrepreneur. Diane explained, "I had always been an organizer, like working with people if their visions are aligned and that led to leading people and being in charge. So, it's a desire to do new things, make things happen. When you need to work on a passion and vision you are sometimes left with no option but to do it yourself. When asked for her advice to young people who are thinking of entrepreneurship, she said. If you see something that really excites you then set about doing it and doing it right. Don't cut any corners, go about it with absolute quality in every way that you approach it and think it through, and execute on it." There's more advice for entrepreneurs.....
